R&B singer Teairra Mari has finally hit the televised promo trail for her new single ‘Hunt 4 U’ – performing on Fox’s Morning Show yesterday. With the host, a little unfairly, labelling her the next Beyonce, Ms. Marie was going to need to deliver one hell of a performance to make this anything other than sub-par. Unfortunately, she didn’t. From the throwback/ancient mics (with the wires), to the strained vocals, to the lack of anything going on on-stage, everything about this came across distinctly ‘amateur’. For what it’s worth, she looked stunning.
I’ve said it many a time, Teairra – who arrived on the scene at the same time and on the same label as a certain Ms. Fenty – is very talented and is deserving of success. However, it’s evident both she and her team need to step it up (how long has her video been out and his is her first TV showing? SMH). It’s a tough time to be trying to establish oneself in the industry at the moment, that extra ‘something’ is essential in making an impact.
